Thycotic Enhances Privileged Access Protection for macOS Workstations and Laptops

WASHINGTON, Dec. 12, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Thycotic, provider of privileged access management (PAM) solutions to more than 10,000 organizations, including 25 of the Fortune 100, today revealed new capabilities that help implement the principle of least privilege security for workstations and laptops running macOS. The new release of Thycotic's Privilege Manager solution supports both Windows and macOS, and protects the largest, and often most vulnerable, portion of the privileged attack surface: network endpoints.

Protecting endpoints in large, diverse deployments
Thycotic Privilege Manager mitigates critical vulnerabilities on endpoints by removing excess privileges that create entry points for cyberattack. Within a least privilege model, policy-based application control elevates, denies, allows, reduces or quarantines applications automatically so people can continue to do their jobs securely and helpdesk support tickets decrease.

Hundreds of thousands of machines in an enterprise deployment can simultaneously communicate with Privilege Manager, check policies and execute application control 24x7. Enterprises that often provision hundreds or even thousands of devices in a single day can easily install Privilege Manager on all employee servers, workstations, and laptops.

"We're seeing significant growth in the use of macOS by our customers, and this release showcases our commitment to supporting this critical operating system," said Jai Dargan, Vice President of Product Management at Thycotic. "Privilege Manager offers key endpoint privilege elevation capabilities for both macOS and Windows."

New Privilege Manager macOS features:

    --  To control who can execute specific commands, added support for macOS
        command line filtering and targeting specific commands on macOS using
        both wildcards and regular expressions.
    --  Network share filters make it easy to target a large set of
        applications. These can now be added to macOS based policies, allowing
        admins to use a network share as a location that can be whitelisted,
        blacklisted, elevated, etc.
    --  New support for macOS Catalina and PKG files for upload.

New Privilege Manager enterprise features:

    --  With multiple admin access to the Privilege Manager console, detailed
        change history can now be tracked for any changes made to a policy,
        configuration, role, filter, action, approval, and discovery. This
        provides streamlined support to help pass audits of third-party security
    --  Many enterprises have separate UAT/test environments or distributed
        environments in different geographic locations. The new policy bulk
        export and import feature, including all of the policy's dependencies,
        enables customers to move a proven policy into production or distribute
        to other environments. This also allows admins to export a complete
        policy to facilitate troubleshooting when issues occur.
